Here's a treat for anyone who blinked and missed the YouTube behind-the-scenes featurette that was floating around the Internet. SpoilerTV has some exclusive The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian stills -- though why Disney gave them to a television site is anyone's guess. No one else is posting them on their sites, just linking, so I'm following suit.

It has been so long since I read Prince Caspian that I'm rusty on the finer points -- but I really don't remember Caspian being so. . .mature. Wasn't there a The Sword in the Stone element to the book, with Caspian being very young, and having to lead an army to regain his throne before he was ready to do it?

I think Disney read the book, looked back at The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and said "What we're really missing is an Orlando Bloom to rally behind." And so we have a Caspian practically old enough to drink, one who is resembling Aragorn more and more with each image I see.

The stills are beautiful though (but no Reepicheep yet!) -- and maybe, despite my grumbling about accuracy, I will like it better than Wardrobe. It has to be good, otherwise all my hopes for my favorite book, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, will be dashed.
